Description: VIEW has grown to become one of Albany Entertainment Centre's crowning jewels. Adjoining the main foyer, metres from the edge of Albany's magnificent Princess Royal Harbour, its ceiling-to-floor glass walls provide a unique perspective on the city's renowned scenery. With little more than crystal-clear ocean and the rolling hills of the harbour's southernmost shores to occupy your mind, you can sit back and enjoy a light lunch, a delicious pre-show meal or quiet coffee and cake. VIEW is the only place you'd want to be - and the only place with the best view! Our chef sources the best local Great Southern produce creating stylish, mouth-watering menus that tempt the senses and pleasure the palate. Fully-licensed, VIEW stocks a wide range of Great Southern and WA wines, along with a variety of boutique beers, spirits and liqueurs. Free wireless high-speed internet is available and the lounge seating provides a relaxed setting for last-minute meetings or afternoon coffees between friends. Alternatively, the formal restaurant area offers the perfect setting for corporate and function entertaining.

“Superior service, lovely food”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

After consulting Trip Advisor reviews to decide where to take my mother and uncle for lunch, I decided to try the View. Wow, everything more than met my expectations - right from my call to book. Our greeting upon arrival there was warm and welcoming. The waitress was attentive, helpful, and friendly during our entire visit. The offerings on the menu were enticing, with the prices being on par with other restaurants in the area that do not offer the ambience and lovely service we experienced at the View. The food however, is the ultimate measure of a restaurant and we were all very happy with our choice. Fish of the day was local Queen Snapper - beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. The coffees were lovely and my husband really enjoyed the gluten-free carrot cake. We had such a lovely experience on this occasion that we will definitely be going there again and will not hesitate to recommend the View to our friends.

“HBH at The View in Albany”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

Albany has many places to eat but this is relatively new so opted to try it. There are good views of the estuary and a pleasant park area. Good choice of meals, the menu offers gluten free and is one of the only places I have seen that also offers dairy free options without having to ask for a special. Nice burger on a very light tasty bun - not too stodgy! Helpful friendly staff. Walls are angled which helped reduced the noise that you often find in a restaurant / cafe.

“Delightful experience with a view”
Reviewed 23 August 2013 via mobile

My partner and I finally got the opportunity to dine here yesterday after hearing so many good reports lately. What a fantastic venue. Being a mid week lunchtime there were quite a few diners but we were able to get a table with a fabulous view of the harbour. On our arrival we were greeted and seated and offered water and the specials of the day. Entree was a prawn dish cooked two ways, we decided to share this and ended up having a fork fight for the last prawn, fantastic flavours!
I chose the fish of the day which was a magnificent slab of locally caught Gropher on a bed of mash with side veggies, delicious ! My partner ordered the steak sandwich (his personal fav) and his first reaction was " let's find out where they buy their meat from" it was so tender that you could cut it with your eyes. We would have loved to have tried some of the great looking cakes they had to offer but we had no more room to squeeze anything more in. Great excuse to come back! Great food, great service and the best view of Albany.

“Punching above its weight.”
Reviewed 18 April 2013

I went to the restaurant to enjoy the pleasant view of the harbour and have a coffee.Then I decided to check out the lunch menu.I decided on the daily special a Linguini Carbonara.I wasn't expecting anything above average.When it came it was a generous serve and was very well presented.I then found it to be one of the best pasta dishes I have ever enjoyed-absolutely magnificent.

“This is nice!”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

We had lunch here-risotto and toasted sandwiches (which were unbelievably good!). Very good value for money and nice helpful staff. We would go back again and recommend it happily. The views are beautiful!
